Clevland Police Department released body camera footage taken by the first responding officers at the scene of the mass shooting this past July 9, where nine people were injured. The footage highlights the importance of having medical gear in your vehicle and on your person, specifically, a tourniquet.
Jaylon Jennings, a 25-year-old man from Cleveland, Ohio, stands accused of attempting to murder nine people in the city’s Warehouse District in the early hours of Sunday, July 9. The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. at the 1200 block of W. 6th Street. All nine victims were promptly transported to MetroHealth Medical Center, though their identities and current conditions remain undisclosed.
Jennings made his initial court appearance today, where he pleaded not guilty to the charges. The charges leveled against him include nine counts of attempted murder, possession of weapons while under disability, discharging a firearm on or over a public road or highway, and having a concealed carry weapon (CCW) permit. The judge overseeing the case has set the bond at $9 million.
According to court records, Jennings allegedly spotted several of the victims inside the Rumor Bar & Lounge, after which he intentionally retrieved a firearm from the trunk of his car parked nearby on W. 6th Street. Subsequently, he is said to have approached the victims and fired shots in their direction.
Following a manhunt, Jennings was arrested on Tuesday, July 11, at a residence on Toledo Ave. in Lorain. The arrest was made possible with assistance from the U.S. Marshals.
